About Makai Kingdom
An attempt to rewrite history gone terribly wrong, Lord Zetta
the ruler of netherworld brought destruction upon himself.
When all seemed lost, three evil overlords appear before Lord
Zetta to help him recreate his world. Now Lord Zetta wages
war on a new world to become the supreme ruler once again,
while the three overlords entertain themselves by creating
more trouble for Lord Zetta.
Players will take on the role of Lord Zetta to command
an army of determined fighters to reclaim what has righteously
been his, the netherworld. Gamers will battle enemies ranging
from vicious demons to determined soldiers with both modern
and ancient warfare. Slash your enemies with the good old
broadsword or blast your way through with the deadly rocket
launcher; the choices are yours.
Makai Kingdom introduces a new summoning system
referred to as the INVITE system that summons your facilities
that contain army units to the battlefield. Every facility
summoned to the battlefield will contain your troops that
are then deployed to battle your hated enemies. In Makai Kingdom,
battle maps are randomly generated, offering a new gaming
experience every time you play. With unlimited variations
of maps, gamers can expect countless hours of game play.
